Lizards of Southeast Queensland
Home to a variety of lizard species the South East Qld region supports representatives from the Skink, Gecko, Dragon and Monitor groups of lizards. Some like the Eastern Water Dragon, Eastern Blue-tongue Skink and the Lace Monitor are often sighted in and around homes.
The majority of lizards have coped well with the habitat modification seen throughout the region with some species becoming abundant where feeding and refugia resources are well afforded. Some species often enter homes when foraging bringing them in to contact with humans and pets.
